Huge win for car owners! All TSBs to be made public. The Center for Auto Safety just made the NHTSA (US Government) make public the full text of all TSBs from now on. They are the same organization that has petitioned the NHTSA & filed lawsuits to protect car owners over exploding gas tanks & other major safety issues. Whenever you drive in your car, you are safer thanks in part to a lot of work over the years by this small but very effective consumer advocacy group.

Please take a moment & say thank you by donating $5 or whatever you can to the Center for Auto Safety.

ENGINE SERVICE LIGHT CAME ON THEN THE TRAC LIGHT THEN THE BRAKE LIGHT. I HAD THE CAR CHECKED OUT AND THEY SAID IT WAS MINOR PROBLEMS BUT IT IS EMBARRASSING WHEN YOU HAVE SOMEONE IN THE CAR AND THEY THINK YOU'RE NOT TAKING CARE OF YOUR CAR. ALSO THE PROBLEM IS STILL THERE AND FINALLY A NEW MECHANIC SAYS IT COULD BE A BEARING PROBLEM OR WIRES FOR THE BEARINGS? HE JUST SAYS THAT IT COULD BE VERY EXPENSIVE AND THE CAR ISN'T WORTH IT. THE BODY OF OUR CAR IS IN EXCELLENT CONDITION JUST THESE HORRIBLE PROBLEMS. WHAT'S WITH THIS GM
